The reasons outlined by the C.O. and GMax for not canvassing the Boards in advance of a real application are certainly plausible given the politics of distance learning.
Yet, could the Communications Officer at least give some further explanation of how the figure of 35 amenable states was arrived at - given that he has understandably eschewed a direct trawl?
There is no need to name names if he'd rather not do so. But, as has been said, there's a lot to be taken purely on trust here and anything which could clarify his optimism would further the cause of his school (and of distance learning).
It's especially difficult for us, having been told repeatedly here how vehemently opposed the majority of state boards are to even a very small amount of d-l, to believe that 35/50 are likely to issue full licenses.
I hope it is true though!
